The personal learning network for educators

Our math team is designing a STEM Course for 12th. grade students.  We are interested in doing a STEM Research course, through which students will learn how to conduct an investigation using scientific method, descriptive and inferential statistics, etc. to answer an original research question.  Any ideas for resources? People to talk to?  Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi Ron,

Don't know if this will help, but I teach an independent research course in science called Special Aspects.  I have a Moodle site for it that you can log into as a guest.  Go to this site:

http://gahannamoodle.org/login/index.php

Then login as a guest.  The special enrollment key is "academysa" (don't include the quotes).  It should let you in and you are welcome to browse the files.  Be sure to look at the "Start Here" documents first to get an overall view of what we are trying to do... it may not fit exactly, but from the sounds of your description, I think it might be close.  My students tend to be juniors and seniors in engineering/robotics or biology/medicine, but it can work with any kids. 

Feel free to drop me a line, set up a chat, etc.  My email I check most often is:

fdonelson@gmail.com

Hope this helps.  I love teaching this!

Fred

Thanks, Fred.  I just looked at the two Start Here documents, and this would definitely be useful to us!  Thank you for sharing.  Over the next few weeks, I will continue to look over these, and ask any questions I have.  As I compile information on our school's web-site, I will also share them with you.  

I have been reading Tony Wagner's "Creating Innovators" as inspiration for this course.  You may want to check it out!

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
